Heads up: according to the video page, Funimation won't let you watch their subs of it unless your register for the site and confirm that you're 17+.

Because Haganai is the official shorthand name for the series.

Well they took the ga from towards the end of the show title and the nai out of Sakunai and combined them. Don't know where the ha comes from though.

This has been discussed a few times before, but it's all the hiragana from the title.

友達ない = はがない

But because the context (grammatical rule), "ha" is pronounced and written "wa" in romaji, so that's why the title is "Boku wa" instead of "Boku ha".

Anyway... it's a sort of odd and uniquely Japanese way of picking the show's short form, but it stuck. Funimation adopted it as well because it's shorter and easier for people to remember and pronounce.
